Take me to Hogwarts, Harry Potter

Take me to Hogwarts, Harry Potter! It's September 1st and as a good children's librarian, I know that today is the start of term for Hogwarts. Come with me!

Please take me to Hogwarts, Harry Potter!

It’s been one of those days.  There’s a hurricane nearby with lots of rain and wind (or maybe dementors).  I just found out hour-long staff meetings have been scheduled for the next 6 months on my day off.  My kids are still home snoozing on a Thursday because they canceled school for Hermine (which should really be Hermione, don’t you think?), but not where I work.

So, since it is the 1st of September and I am, after all, a very well-read children’s librarian, I know that today is the start of term for Hogwarts.

Are you having a gloomy day, too?

Why don’t you come with me to the world of Harry Potter?  I think we could use a bit of a break, don’t you?

So, again I say, take me to Hogwarts, Harry Potter!

I have my acceptance letter!

Did you misplace your Hogwarts acceptance letter?  Tsk, tsk.

Here is a great place to print out a personalized one, just for you. 

Now, what about your ticket for the Hogwarts’ Express?

Here’s where you can print out your own.

This one is mine:

Take me to Hogwarts, Harry Potter! Come with me! Print out your own Hogwart's Express ticket.

Remember, you get on the train at Platform 9 3/4.

Now you need to be sorted into your house!

I am in Gryffindor! Yay! (Colors are the same as my alma mater – Florida State)

Take me to Hogwarts, Harry Potter! It's September 1st and as a good children's librarian, I know that today is the start of term for Hogwarts. Come with me!

The official place to do this is at Pottermore.com.  You do need to create a free account to join, but it is a lot of fun, and there is so much great stuff on this site.

Here is the link to get sorted: www.pottermore.com/explore-the-story/the-sorting-hat

But here is another version from Buzzfeed.com that you can try as well.

Now you’re set!

Then you need to make your own wand.

From chopsticks, a hot glue gun, paint and beads.

 

Next, make yourself at home with a nice warm butterbeer.

Here’s the recipe.

 

And, one last thing from this librarian (who is NOT like Madam Pince, thank you very much).

I think it’s time to re-read your Harry Potter books. Don’t you?

Here are some fun little bookmarks you can print out for free, so you can keep your place while you study for Potions or Transfiguration.

So, get your trunk packed, load up your owl and I’ll see you later on the Hogwarts Express!

I feel better already!

Happy reading!
